    EU-IoT will act as an accelerator for the whole European IoT ecosystem towards transforming the current IoT community of researchers and innovators in Europe into an increasingly cohesive, dynamic, participatory and sustainable ecosystem, as an essential part of the Next Generation Internet initiative. It will intervene to assist stakeholders to engage and create value, as well as set up a self-sustaining European IoT community. This requires tackling a number of challenges related to the complex interplay among stakeholders and the many relevant initiatives. The overarching need is the consolidation of fragmented IoT verticals and the still disconnected research and technology domains. To this purpose, EU-IoT set up a strong consortium and plan of action for the establishment of an open and inclusive ecosystem facilitating interactions of all players, know-how exchange, creation of strategic partnerships and durable liaisons. Agility of planning and action is paramount to meet the demand and needs of an ecosystem that is in continuous transformation. EU-IoT will a) help to create a common strategy aligned with the NGI vision to achieve the H2020 goals, while supporting the transition to Horizon Europe; b) foster synergies, liaisons and exchange among all key players in the European landscape; c) support and coordinate outreach and impact creation activities of upcoming ICT-56 projects and Large Scale Pilots; d) pave the way for the development of business models, innovation activities and skills building that lower adoption and deployment barriers for IoT solutions; e) provide a collaborative framework, including content, tools and processes, to engage all EU researchers, developers, integrators and users, thus overcoming fragmentation and assisting further development of a strong European IoT-empowered economy as core building block of the Digital Single Market and Digital Europe altogether.

    EFFORTI is responding to the topic GERI-3-2015, “Evaluation of initiatives to promote gender equality in research policy and research organizations” in context of Horizon 2020 - Science with and for Society (SWAFS). EFFORTI (Evaluation Framework for Promoting Gender Equality in R&I) seeks to analyse and model the influence of measures to promote gender equality on research and innovation out-puts and on establishing more responsible and responsive RTDI systems. For this purpose, EFFORTI will • develop an evaluation framework which enables evaluators, science managers, policy-makers and programme owners to conduct a sound analysis of the research and innovation outputs, outcomes and impacts of gender equality measures across Europe, with a focus on the national level. • design a differentiated concept to characterize a variety of policy measures and assess their performance, taking into account the diversity in the national policies as well as in organizational contexts. • derive general lessons for evidence-based and thus "good" policy making in the field of gender equality within the RTDI system. This means that not only progress towards more gender equality in RTDI has been achieved but also that RTDI has been able to benefit from this progress through enhanced scientific outputs and productivity but also through a higher responsiveness to societal needs and challenges. The EFFORTI consortium consist of six partners representing a wide arrange of different institu-tional types, namely contract research organizations (Fraunhofer Society, Joanneum Research), universities (University of Catalunia, University of Aarhus), a NGO (Association of Hungarian Women in Science - NaTE) and a company (Intrasoft S.A.), distributed all over Europe (Germany, Austria, Spain, Denmark, Hungary and Luxembourg).

    CYBECO will research, develop, demonstrate, evaluate and exploit a new framework for managing cybersecurity risks, one that is focusing on cyberinsurance, as key risk management treatment. CYBECO integrates multidisciplinary research methods from Behavioural Economics, Statistics, Game and Decision Theory, Security Engineering and Behavioral Psychology in order to develop new concepts and models that are combined within a prototype software architecture (CYBECO Toolbox 2.0). CYBECO recognizes that the cyberinsurance domain is not adequately developed, partly due to the lack of sufficiently large statistical data sample and partly due to the difficulties customers face when deciding on their cyberinsurance investment options. CYBECO will address both these barriers, aiming at delivering advances clearly positioned beyond the State-of-the-Art. We plan to implement a prototype tool that will demonstrate and promote the CYBECO model and concepts. We then foresee to perform behavioural experiments to validate current institutional cybersecurity frameworks and to provide relevant policy insights, particularly in reference to behavioural nudges in cybersecurity. The CYBECO consortium is composed by complementary partners, coming from the addressed research, technological and market domains, that have a proven track record of high quality research capacity. Thus, the carefully structured workplan, embodies a holistic approach towards meeting the CYBECO objectives and delivering market-relevant outcomes of significant exploitation potential.

    The CLARITY project seeks to support European Member States in their pursuit for greater trust, transparency and efficiency within government via the increase take-up of open government initiatives. CLARITY is a small-scale coordination and support action designed to: 1) mobilise a multidisciplinary network of stakeholders across the open government ecosystem in order to support and encourage the take-up of responsible eGovernment applications that can help drive open government initiatives. 2) Conduct an interactive needs assessment and gap analysis in order to understand gaps in the market and support the growth on innovative solutions for open government in Europe and 3) work with the network to develop a blueprint for next steps in facilitating open government initiatives in Europe. Key outputs from the CLARITY project include: 1) opportunities for stakeholder engagement and innovation via focus groups, workshops the CLARITY Sprint Event and the CLARITY Exhibition and final conference; 2) the findings from the needs assessment and gap analysis in order to see current gaps in the provision, design and development of eGovernment applications; 3) the CLARITY blueprint for next steps in the take-up of eGovernment applications in Europe and 4) the establishment of the Open Government Marketplace – a space for the advertising, case studies and testimonials surrounding the implementation of eGovernment applications for Open Government be added

    The productivity of the serial production model is compromised by the need to perform changes in the production equipment that cannot support multiple operations in dynamic environments. Low cost labour is no longer an option for EU manufacturers due to the fast rise of wages and the increasing costs of energy and logistics. Manual tasks cannot be fully automated with a good ratio of cost vs robustness using standard robots due to: high product variability, dedicated process equipment and high cost of maintenance by expert users. The answer to this challenge lays in the creation of production concepts that base their operation on the autonomy and collaboration between production resources. The vision of THOMAS is: “to create a dynamically reconfigurable shopfloor utilizing autonomous, mobile dual arm robots that are able to perceive their environment and through reasoning, cooperate with each other and with other production resources including human operators”. The objective of THOMAS are to: - Enable mobility on products and resources. Introducing mobile robots able to navigate in the shopfloor and utilize dexterous tooling to perform multiple operations. - Enabling perception of the task and the environment using a) the individual resource’s and b) collaborative perception by combining sensors of multiple resources - Dynamic balancing of workload. Allowing the resources to communicate over a common network and automatically adjust their behaviour by sharing or reallocating tasks dynamically. - Fast programming and automatic execution of new tasks by a) automatically generating the robot program for new products and b) applying skills over the perceived environment to determine required adaptations - Safe human robot collaboration, eliminating physical barriers, by introducing cognitive abilities that allow the detection of humans and their intentions THOMAS will demonstrate and validate its developments in the automotive and the aeronautics industrial sectors.
